I'm surprised I haven't heard of "Tales of Tomorrow" until discovering it here on the Archive. This episode is well-acted, and the camera's love for Newman is immediately evident even though he's not the lead.

Fun Early Sci-Fi
This reminded me somewhat of Howard Hawks' original "The Thing from Another World" in it's frozen setting. Also, I found it amusing that you could just jump in a V-2 rocket and take off as though you were borrowing Dad's Buick!

ToT Ice from Space
It seems as the series progress, the stories and acting got better. This one seems almost as good as a latter SCI-FI program in the 1960's, The Outer Limits.

A Delightful Sci-Fi Romp
Well written and performed with gusto, I found this to be a very watchable ep. One wonders - did a certain writer named Kurt get his idea for "Ice-Nine" from this show?
In addition to a very young Paul Newman, you'll also be treated to a not so young Raymond Bailey, sans toupee, known to millions as "Milburn Drysdale" of the Commerce Bank of Beverly Hills on the Beverly Hillbillies.
